Some things are worth waiting four decades for. Just ask Dave Taylor.
The St. Louis Blues vice president of hockey operations has spent a life in hockey, holding various posts after 17 seasons in the League, all with the Los Angeles Kings.
On Thursday, Taylor finally got to hoist the Cup in his hometown of Levack, Ontario.
Taylor, the 1991 King Clancy Memorial Trophy and Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy winner as a player, started with the Blues in 2010 as director of player personel.
He took over as Blues VP of hockey operations in June of 2012.
Prior to working with the Blues, he spent three seasons with the Dallas Stars and 10 seasons with the Kings, including serving as the team's general manager from 1997-2006.
